When purchasing a surprise gift for a man, never underestimate the power of a high-tech gadget. High-tech gadgets, such as portable espresso makers and fashionable MP3 holders, can leave a lasting impression. If the guy you're purchasing a gift for has everything, consider buying him a smartpen. Livescribe's Pulse Smartpen has a voice recorder, which records as you write. Afterward, the smartpen links the recording to whatever you were writing at the time. Smartpens are particularly handy for businessmen or anyone who takes a lot of notes.
DVDs and Music
If you are familiar with his taste in movies and music, there are many items you can buy that will seem thoughtful. Look for movie titles by his favourite director. For example, if your guy loves the movie "A Clockwork Orange," look for a box set of movies by the film's director, Stanley Kubrick. You could also search for vintage movie posters that reflect his taste in movies.
Predictably, music lovers always enjoy CDs and memorabilia. If the person you are buying a gift for is a fan of Billy Idol, consider purchasing a biography of the artist or a Billy Idol T-shirt.
Forget Expensive Gifts
According to Michelle McKinney Hammond, author of "Secrets of an Irresistible Woman: Smart Rules for Capturing His Heart," if you are buying a gift for a man you're dating, you should avoid buying him an expensive gift until he gives you one first. "Make your gift something small and thoughtful that will bring a smile to his face. ... A costly gift will be taken as a hint that he should reciprocate in like expensive manner."
Instead of buying him an expensive gift, pick up something meaningful, such as a pair of concert tickets for his favourite band or a canister of his favourite imported stuffed olives.
